in science? and someone said, well, you may not know it, but he was there when columbus discovered the earth was round and newton discovered gravity and franklin discovered electricity. mr. speaker, they say that imtation is the greatest form of flattery, and this was a poor attempt on my part to show how ralph hall brightens this institution every day with his humor. he is clearly the witnessiest member of congress in a body that is in desperate need to be brightened up and benefited by such great witt and humor. besides his witt and humor, he is the wisest men to serve in this body and i benefit from that wisdom as do so many others. mr. speaker, we heard earlier that ralph said i would rather be respected at home and liked in washington, not only is he respected in rockwall, texas, he is beloved in rockwall, texas and not only is he liked in washington, more importantly, he is respected in washington, and more importantly, he is respected by both republicans and democrats alike, and that, mr. speaker, is a huge, huge testament. so, mr. speaker, i'm honored to recognize a texas legend, a w

were watching columbus stumble across america. latino voters, who knew? demographic changes moving slow as glaciers but this one seemed to sneak up on the news media like a sudden thunderstorm. i've been trying to introduce my colleagues to real latinos and immigrants for sometime. i've worked on bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bills and stayed at the table to work out a compromise, even after all republicans had left the table, but the republican party seem much more interested in the imaginary latinos they tried to use as a wedge issue so they craft messages aimed at the very few americans who are not offended when immigrants are referred to as criminals, gang bangers, freeloaders, law breakers whenever they are spoken about in america. the party nominated a presidential candidate who has creative ways to defend latinos. call for the more than -- more than 10 million families and say just support them. celebrate the extreme arizona laws, check. threatened to veto the dream act and let hundreds of thousands of young people who applied for deford action, fear for their futur

that intentionally timed to coincide with columbus' arrival in america. he and high in his vision for the new school. he was not the first speaker. after an opening prayer, a princeton professor recited a lengthy poem, which he wrote for the ceremony. this poem, drawn from an indian legend, it evoked images of a wild bees, some stars, and frontier pioneers. the audience listening to the words the strictest attention, punctuated with frequent applause. the next speaker, the chief justice of texas, spoke in prose. his review was nowhere near as good as the poet received. in light of that, i thought the best course would be for me to compose a poem for this occasion. again, no need to panic or run for the exit. i gave up that plan when i could not find a suitable words that rhyme to with sui generis. president spoke third and delivered his speech. his essay is in fact a truly magnificent scholarly work. it prevents -- presents a methodical and prophetic vision of what the rice institute would become. i would like to focus on one point he made. he observed a great challenge in creating any institution i

able to go to school. i think mitt romney lost a lot of people in columbus because of that 47%. >> i am merely of said. i cannot believe that we, again, that mr. obama into the white house. i am a nurse and it has been here to find a job. a home health -- patients are not being seen big medicare cuts. >> i think it is a very dark day. i am shocked and dismayed how this man could have won again. i really feel that the election, so many people are out of work. i am an executive in this community who lost his job and was able to find a job. there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with the obama, with our troops and our embassy, i think he handled it improperly and i would not be surprised before he gets ready to give his inaugural speech that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale because there is no work in this country and it is not going to get better. >> i want to address why i believe mitt romney di

american population. in most places, those tend to go democratic. from columbus, indiana on the democratic line. caller: i am wanting to have a conversation or have the speaker discuss what he felt the numbers represented in terms of the 39% of white voters. people make assumptions about the various minorities and who would represent their interests best. maybe there is more about that percentage of white voters who shows -- who chose obama. guest: the president also strong support among white voters came from college educated -- the president's strongest support among white voters came from college-educated white women. it is also true that the president did fairly well with white, working-class voters in key states such as ohio. his ability to hold on to support for what you might think of as the old democratic coalition, which was heavily focused on white, working-class voters -- he held on to those voters in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, in part because of support for the auto bailout, in part because of mitt romney's background as a venture capitalist did not sit well with those voters. the

it on current tv. host: ron from columbus georgia, independent line. caller: good morning. i do agree with your comment about campaign is over, let's govern. but i am a veteran and i've been a company commander and my point is this, i cannot call my boss and say i cannot get my company commanders to agree on how to accomplish a commission. i won't be a company commander very long. here's the point, the american people are the boss. there should be a law that's presented to congress that says from mr. president on down to congress, if you cannot solve the country's problems you need to go. it's just that simple. americans are sick and tired of the partisan politics and we just don't see the greatest country in the world moving forward the way it's supposed to be. and it's because you've got these guys playing partisan congress. there should not be a republican or democrat, it should be america's party after you're elected to congress. guest: i agree with the principle but we have the means in place if we use it and that's an election. every two years members of the house of representatives are u
